People who turn to make it about the symbology and iconography rather than what's happening and the reason for said protest don't deserve our time.
The furthest I'll go without getting too tinderboxy: You're starting to see mass protests now that are 90-95% peaceful with even the cops in some cities joining in. There's clearly even females in their teens with friends joining these rallies, just watch the live feeds. This isn't some left militia. Those who turn the focus immediately to rioters (who yeah, let's get them under control) or try to posturize their love for country is disgusting. Live in the now and understand what's happening NOW. The country is crazy right now due to major systematic problems that our said "leaders" need to make swift action on. Gun violence, police brutality, income inequality. These things should be easy to address without getting political.
